I did mention that I had tried dia (I've had it installed for quite a
while) and found that it wasn't really up to the job.

So far after briefly playing with Geda, Qucs, Kicad, Oregano, Electric and one
other the best seems to be Oregano.  One thing that Oregano can do which
few of the others can is to export the diagram as a png or postscript file.
